PUBLISHER Mary McFarland EDITORIAL DIRECTOR Mary McFarland

Dear Readers,

I

t’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas in Eagle. The twinkling lights are everywhere, Heritage Park looks like a winter dream and the new Christmas décor is on the streetlights downtown. Two years ago I moved into my new house on Christmas Eve and last year I was out of town so this is my first year to decorate my house. The minute this letter is done, I am off to my storage unit to deck these halls. My grandkids are coming and I can’t wait! Gateway Parks is making snow and plans to open on Saturday, December 9th. The whole family is going as soon as they get here. The Botanical Gardens Winter Garden Aglow is in full swing, that’s not to be missed either. Country Christmas is also on December 9th, so get everyone together to play in Eagle. Be sure to shop the local stores first and help keep our retailers in Eagle. Planning a Christmas party? Why not have one of the fine local restaurants cater it for you? Or better yet, reserve your table and let them do all of the work! New Year’s Eve looks to be another fun time in Boise. The big potato drop is back along with the rail jam at the Capitol. Bundle up and go make some memories! If you’re fortunate enough to have an abundance of food, please consider donating to the local food bank or the Salvation Army. There are lots of folks in need and plenty of opportunities to donate your time to the less fortunate.

Merry Christmas and have a blessed 2018!

You Can Do It Yourself!

WINTER BIRD FEEDING

MakingSuet

Suet is really easy to make. A basic suet combines equal parts of beef fat and assorted birdseed. Put it in a tuna or cat food can to chill (or freeze) until it›s hard enough to hold its shape, then release it into a wire suet cage or sturdy mesh bag. For a fancier suet, add natural peanut butter to the mix. Common birds that eat suet are downy, hairy, redbellied, and pileated woodpeckers. Chickadees, northern flickers, nuthatches, and starlings are also avid suet eaters.

KIDS CAN MAKE THIS BY rolling a pine cone in peanut butter and bird seed

It’s time to fill up the birdfeeders! After last winter’s epic snowfall and the same type of weather expected this year, feeding the birds helps keep them healthy and it’s quite entertaining to see who will stop by everyday. I have a poster with photos and names of local birds; it’s fun to identify different species and find the foods that attract favorites. Whatbird.com is an excellent source for identifying birds from waterfowl to songbirds. Since I have a large pond behind my house, I also feed the waterfowl. Whether you’re an old pro or just learning about feeding critters in the winter, there are tons of ideas. You can buy ready made feeders but even more can be built pretty simply, just stop by Evan’s for your building materials and if you want to buy feeders, they have lots to choose from and even more available at acehardware.com. Just shop on line and then choose Evan’s for your pick up store. They also stock birdseed. Go to www.acehardware.com/home/index.jsp to shop and set Evan’s as your home store.

Feed Tips

One thing I’ve learned, is to buy or build a sturdy post, between high winds, heavy foods and other wildlife vying for food, they need to be strong. The shepherd’s hooks vary in strength and can usually only support one feeder at best. The more variety in food you supply, the more birds you’ll attract. Adding a base to

catch dropped feed will help the ground feeders get to the food. For best results dig a hole for a 6x6 post and fill with concrete. From there, you can add lots of hooks and different types of feeders without fear of wind damage. Unless you buy “sprout less” feed, be prepared for some weeds to sprout, but they

are easily pulled in the spring. •

I like to supply suet, thistle, corn, sunflowers, peanuts and birdseed.

For a fun afternoon with the kids try spreading peanut butter on a pinecone and rolling in birdseed, hang it from your feeder or tree.

FITNESS OVER FIFTY

Your Holiday Survival Strategy Tips to NOT gain weight!

There’s no denying that the holidays have arrived. Lights have been strung, gifts are being wrapped and holiday treats are everywhere.  It’s no secret that most people gain 5 to 10 pounds over the next month. With all the parties, special meals and edible gifts, weight gain is pretty much inevitable...right?  Not so fast. 

This plan works because it allows you to indulge in 2 exceptions a day!

I’ve come up with a survival strategy to keep holiday pounds from making a permanent home on your hips. This strategy is very simple. I’m not expecting you to have the time to log all your calories or eat every meal at home. We are going to be realistic... 

Golden Tip to Avoid Holiday Pounds: Spend the next 4 weeks eating like a caveman, with 2 daily exceptions. Here’s why: Holiday pounds are caused by eating too many foods that are high in carbohydrates and simple sugars.  You can avoid all that by sticking with an eating plan created by our pre-historic ancestors, while still keeping things fun by allowing for 2 small daily exceptions.  This is what you would eat...  As many fresh and fiber-filled vegetables as you want. • Load up on salads.

• •

Enjoy vegetable side dishes. Just no starchy vegetables like potato or corn.

Lots of lean, protein-filled meats and eggs. • Stick with meat that has been roasted, barbequed, or baked. • Avoid fried meats and eggs. Fruits, nuts and seeds in moderation • Fresh fruit for a delicious dessert. • A handful of nuts or seeds for a snack. • Don’t eat sugar-added fruits, nuts or seeds. Then enjoy 2 small exceptions... • Bread or grain product: No larger than the size of your hand. • Starchy vegetables: Half of a cup. • Baked goods: Should fit into the palm of your hand. • Candies or confections: The smaller the better. • Holiday drinks: 8 ounces. This plan works because it allows you to indulge in 2 exceptions each day. This encourages you to pick and choose the holiday cheat food that you really love, as opposed to feeling obligated to eat everything in sight. When you navigate the buffet line at your next holiday party, feel confident knowing that you have a game plan. Stick with salad, vegetables and meats first, then pick out your 2 small exceptions and savor those.  Remember, I’m here to help you meet your fitness and weight loss goals.  If you are not already on a fitness program, don’t wait until the New Year to begin; exercise helps control cravings, reduces stress, improves mood, and countless other benefits! At Fit Over 50 Fitness, we offer private personal training, small group training, and large group classes in a private studio setting. Schedule a free consultation today to see what makes us more unique than regular gyms and pick up a free copy of my book Fit Over 50 just for stopping by!

Geoff Edwards is the owner of Fit Over 50 Fitness, a personal training and group fitness studio located in Eagle that specializes in functional fitness training for those who want to enjoy an active lifestyle through their 50’s and beyond. More information can be found at FitOver50Fitness.com

It's the party time of year...are you ready? Since it's also a very busy time of year, here are some tips for putting together a very easy appetizer to take to your next gathering.

Build a DELICIOUS CHEESE BOARD Choose your serveware

This is the base for your elements so think about size, color and presentation. Wooden cutting boards, slate or chalkboard cheese boards, large white serving trays, and additions of small bowls are some ideas. Be creative and look around your kitchen, you probably already have something to use!

Pick the cheeses + meats

Go for a blend of hard and soft cheeses, mixing mild ones with sharper tastes, so there's a good variety. Bries and fresh chevres are creamy in texture, while an Irish sharp cheddar is harder. Other choices: Gruyere, Asiago, Manchego, or Roquefort or Havarti. (Take your cheeses out 30 minutes before party time). For meats, popular choices can be salami, proscuitto, or thinly sliced turkey.

Add bread and crackers

You'll need a vehicle to eat all this deliciousness. French baquettes, crackers in all flavors, breadsticks, Foccacia

Fill in with fruit

Grapes, apples, berries, figs, dried fruits like apricots and mangos all help add a balance of flavor to your board.

The extras

Here's where you add little pops of fun. Put these items in small dishes around or the board or place the dish on the board. Olives, capers, cornichons, nuts like almonds, walnuts and pistacios, and little jars of honey, jams, dijon mustard or maybe a balsamic glaze offer your guests an endless combination of bites.

*

Make sure you have plenty of knives, spoons, plates, and napkins near your board. FESTIVE ADD-ON

Make your display festive by adding a little holiday cheer. Chocolate santa, anyone? 24 DECEMBER 2017 | www.eagleinformer.com

KID N! VERSIO

MAKE ONE FOR THE LITTLES!

Younger guests will enjoy a tray just for them! Goldfish crackers, raisins, sliced apples, orange slices, Cheerios, ham or turkey slices, cheese squares and olives are some suggestions. For serving: Divide items up in a muffin tin lined with festive cupcake liners. Little hands can help themselves. Beverages: Surround it with some chilled juice boxes and everyone will be happy.

Word from the Experts Landscape + Garden // FARWEST GARDEN CENTER

Living gifts to give

H

olidays are right around the corner and this is a perfect time to make great memories with family and friends. We really enjoy making green or live gifts indoors with our favorite people. Here are some of our fun projects for December 2017. Heat up the hot cider, nibble on some treats and make some memories this busy holiday season! See you in the Garden, Dennis

Airplant, Wood and Glass

Tillsandia arrangements make great gifts. They require bright, indirect light and water once a week. We use tacky glue to adhere air plants to log slices or driftwood and add a little lichen or spanish moss as a finishing touch. An airplant glass terrarium is another great gift idea; no glue required. Use 1-3 tillsandia, moss, twigs, rocks and even a little animal figurine and you have the perfect living gift!

Evergreen Wreath

The smell of fresh cut greens really gets us into the holiday spirit! Use spruce, fir or cedar as your base on a flat metal 1014" ring. Create bundles of 6-7" long greens and wrap tightly with florist wire. Wire each evergreen bundle to your wire wreath form. You can add: holly, twigs, moss, pinecones and any natural cuttings that you like on top of your base layer. Add a couple of favorite ornaments and a bow as the last step. Hang on your front porch as a gift to yourself or give to someone in need of a little holiday cheer...

Living Basket

Everyone needs a little green in their home or office, to get through Idaho's winter months. Houseplants clean the air in a room, so giving a living basket is awesome. Any 6-8" high basket lined basket will work. Fill your basket with potting soil 1-2" below the rim. Select three to four (small 3-4" pot size) houseplants with similar watering needs. Planting a 4" poinsettia with your houseplants will give your basket a pop of color. Tie a bow around the outside of your gift. Remember bright, indirect light and water once a week for most houseplants. 30 DECEMBER 2017 | www.eagleinformer.com

Paperwhites & Amaryllis Narcissus and Amaryllis bulbs are beautiful, affordable, green gifts. Simply add colorful 1/4" stones to any glass or cache pot and place your paperwhites on top of the stone. Wrap your narcissus container with a bright ribbon. Include instructions on adding water just to the bottom of the bulb (so it won't rot) and even a tiny bit of vodka to keep the stems shorter. Plant your amaryllis bulb in a 5" deep container with a drainage hole. Water your amaryllis once a week and enjoy the large bloom stalks!

Living Tree

We love giving potted conifers as gifts. You can place them on your front porch or back patio, decorate with lights, colorful ornaments or add spray painted pinecones. Remember to water your evergreen once a month while it lives outside all winter. Be ready to plant your holiday tree in the spring as soon as you can turn the soil. Voila, you will have a beautiful addition to your landscape for spring 2018.
